Azure Cloud Service (classic) Test

For each cloud service, this test reports the current status, deployment status and CPU utilization on the Azure cloud. In addition, this test helps administrators figure out the Disk I/O and network traffic through each cloud service. This way, administrators can identify the cloud service that is utilized the most in the Azure cloud.

This test is disabled by default. To enable the test, go to the enable / disable tests page using the menu sequence : Agents -> Tests -> Enable/Disable, pick Microsoft Azure as the Component type, Performance as the Test type, choose this test from the disabled tests list, and click on the < button to move the test to the ENABLED TESTS list. Finally, click the Update button.

Target of the Test: Microsoft Azure

Agent deploying the test: A remote agent

Output of the test: One set of results for each cloud service of the target Microsoft Azure being monitored
